2 Kings 15:1-7 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Uzziah a son of Amaziah began to rule over Judah in the twenty-seventh year of the reign of King Jeroboam II of Israel. 2 He was sixteen years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem fifty-two years. His mother was Jecoliah, from Jerusalem. 3 He did what was pleasing in the LORD's sight, just as his father, Amaziah, had done. 4 But he did not destroy the pagan shrines, where the people offered sacrifices and burned incense. 5 The LORD struck the king with leprosy, b which lasted until the day of his death; he lived in a house by himself. The king's son Jotham was put in charge of the royal palace, and he governed the people of the land. 6 The rest of the events in Uzziah's reign and all his deeds are recorded in The Book of the History of the Kings of Judah. 7 When Uzziah died, he was buried near his ancestors in the City of David. Then his son Jotham became the next king.
